Kosher Food Club The purpose of the Kosher Food Club (henceforth abbreviated as KFC) is to provide kosher food to MIT students, faculty, and other community members. Kosher food is food that adheres to a set of dietary standards dictated by Judaism, which include both restrictions on particular types of food as well as a system of trust for verifying that these laws were followed faithfully by food providers. Many of those who opt for kosher food do so for religious reasons, as dietary rules are an integral part of a number of faiths (e.g. Judaism, Islam, some branches of Christianity, Hinduism, and others). In addition, other consumers choose kosher foods for health, mindfulness, cultural, and/or social justice considerations, due to the attention that kosher laws place on knowing the contents of one’s food, ethical treatment of livestock, and the strict segregation of meat and dairy products from each other and from other foods. The KFC acknowledges this diversity of reasons that community members may be interested in kosher food, and we are committed to providing kosher food to all interested parties and thereby enriching their experience at MIT regardless of reason desired.

Yoga 24x7 Yoga 24x7 is a novel and revolutionary concept that comprises of the powerful and transformative 24 principles and 7 practices designed to promote well-being. The 24 principles are universal and axiomatic truths encoded within one's consciousness and body (genes) and found in the wisdom texts of the world and the writings of great sages, philosophers, scientists, and therapists, both ancient and modern. Awareness of these principles and their manifestation into our day-to-day lives through the 7 practices would guarantee well-being and happiness (individual and collective, on all levels - body, mind, intellect and self), while ignorance and neglect of them would produce the opposite. As part of our weekly sessions we do hatha yoga and have lectures on the yoga 24x7 concepts.
